Max Baucus Proposes $856 Billion Health Care Reform Plan

"Senate Finance Committee Chairman Max Baucus has released his long-awaited health overhaul bill, moving forward with a landmark, $856 billion bill even though no Republicans are on board. 

The measure would make major changes to the nation's $2.5 trillion health care system including requiring all individuals to purchase health care or pay a fine. It also would bar insurance company practices like charging more to people with grave health problems. 

A press release from Baucus says the bill would cost roughly $856 billion over the next 10 years."

So, it's Obamacare lite, is it? It'll get to single payer, it'll just take longer.
